on their first $250,000 on income and for income above that amount, people would go back to paying the clinton era rates. the republican position with a few exceptions, like tom cole, is you know what, too bad. nobody gets tax relief. we republicans will hang out right for that 2%. >> let's talk about the president's position on this. times done changed is perhaps an understatement. my paraphrase of your words. the president in a "new york times" piece today calls attention to the way the president was talking about putting revenue on the table in 2011 versus 2012. he was talking about ending deductions and closing loopholes as a primary way to get revenue on the table which is a different position than he has now. play that sound for everybody so they can remember. sorry. it's a full screen. i will read the quotation. what we said was give us $1.2 trillion in additional revenues which could be accomplished without hiking tax rates but simply accomplished by eliminating loopholes, some deductions and engaging in a tax reform process to lower rates generally while broadening the base. that is d

your respiratory system. >> those troubles developments come as hillary clinton made repeated the united states' position that it will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons. >> we have made our views very clear. this is a red line for the united states. >> so is the united states about to get involved in syria's 20 month old conflict? "outfront" tonight, bob bair, peter brooks was under president george w. bush. bob, i'm going to start with you if i can. so, at what point do you think the administration gets involved? is what we've seen now this sense they're creating weapons, is that enough? >> it's not enough. i think the fact they're mixing it is highly alarming, of course. if they start deploying this, if they start putting it on artillery shells, if it looks like they're really going to fire this stuff, i don't see any choice but we're going to have to go in. the west is completely, what i'd also like to say is that with the minority regime that runs s syria, would they use it, absolutely. if they're back is against the wall and they think they're going to go down, the
